Wolves at the Door: Contested Space in the American West


Published 2013
SHOW MORE


This project utilizes a multi-sited approach to explore the specifics of anti-wolf sentiment and policy among rural residents in Idaho and Wyoming. To fully explore current anti-wolf attitudes, interviews, participant observation, and archival research were conducted in the summer of 2012. Wolf populations have declined outside of Yellowstone National Park since their removal from protection under the Endangered Species Act in Idaho and Wyoming in 2011 and 2012 respectively. This project explores wolf policy within the context of local rural history, cultural performance, and the specifics of social memory. Using the concepts of embodied history and social memory, this research explores how rumor, myth, and human-animal bordering are related to anti-wolf sentiment in the American West.
